    Is this working? If so, it is not working for me. Any updates?

    They promoted it with a full page ad in, I believe, the March issue of Dish Magazine as being available that month. Hasn't been mentioned since.

    "sources" have been wrong over and over with Dish .... at this point, expect nothing and when it shows up, let it be a surprise !

    No not spot beam. To see how most of it works, launch the interactive page and then select 2 5. For weather on the 8's all they need is to be able to launch the same pages when watching the weather channel.

    Note since my post they have eliminated the accu-weather on 2,1 and moved this from 2, 5 to 2, 1.

    to have the weather info "default" to the city chosen on the interactive page with the option of choosing weather info from the other 4 "favorites". Another way would be to enter a zip code for local forecasts.

    After having interactive weather channel forecast work for a few weeks I went ahead and setup some favorite cities in addition to my home location. This worked fine for a few weeks. Then a few days ago I went to interactive weather and got the "please wait while we setup up your location" message and all the favorites were gone.

    Not the first time this has happened but I'm fed up. Either get it working permanently or take it off completely. I'm tired of having it come and go. The setup of favorites is agonizingly slow. I tired of wasting my time only to have DISH wipe it all out a few weeks later.
